Recipe idea from here

*Tagine is the Moroccan word that refers to both the unique glazed earthenware vessel with a distinctive conical lid and also the food prepared in it.
Traditionally used by nomads as portable ovens over charcoal braziers for making stews, usually containing meat, the tagine is used for both cooking and serving, but care should be taken to protect your table when using the tagine as a serving dish as the base will be very hot.

We bring a variety of recipe ideas to this blog, but please note, not all may be suitable for you.

If you are a diabetic and not sure how certain foods may affect your blood sugars, test is best, i.e. use your meter.

All the best Jan

This looks yummy, I think I could definitely make it with a fish substitute, thank you for the idea!

Hi Jan,
I always appreciate the new ideas you give me for cooking. My family appreciates it too.

I have exciting news. In January, I applied to take the UW Madison Master Gardener Course. I have been accepted. I start class on Tuesday.
I am excited and nervous at the same time. It is been awhile since I have been to school. ;-)
I will be adjusting my blog schedule until I get use to going back to school.
In case you do not hear from me, know that I will return and your blog friendship is special to me.

Love, Carla
